Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, MP for SingidaNorth Constituency, and Member of National ExecutiveCommittee of ruling CCM.The United Rep of Tanzania – Lazaro Nyalando went into a ranting spree by tweeting that Kenya and Tanzania should not create enmity. This is what he said
Kenya-Tanzania trade relations go back many centuries and we shouldn’t allow hatred and fear to undermine what we have achieved for years
This is after Kenya put a ban on Tanzanian-registered vehicles from dropping off or picking up passengers at JKIA on allegations that Tanzania had continued to deny Kenyan registered vans to take tourists directly to Tanzania airports and national parks.
The reality is that there have been plans to terrorize Tanzania by the Kenyan government. The enmity between Kenya and Tanzania surged when President Barack Obama decided to Visit Tanzania and skip Kenya.
This did not go down well with president Uhuru’s political kitchen that promised to punish Tanzania for this. According to sources, the situation was worsened when President Barack Obama decided to make Jakaya Kikwete the point man in the region. President Uhuru quickly swung into action by mobilizing all other African nations to show that he is not only powerful in the region but the entire Africa.
There was a meeting in one of Kenya’s popular hotels and a resolution to sideline fellow EAC members Tanzania and Burundi was arrived at. This even led to the formation of the so called ” Coalition of the willing ” comprising Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda- Tanzania was sidelined even after protesting . So what you are seeing is basically Kenya retaliating.
President Obama realised the mistake he made and was key in the making ICC clear Uhuru because the relationship between USA and many African states started being shaky. The USA political schemers also realised that Kenya cannot be ignored.
